Design Aglow DIY: Adding Prints to a Presentation Folder

Design Aglow DIY: Adding Prints to a Presentation Folder

Today we're excited to get a little crafty and show you how we include prints inside our presentation folders. Grab your coffee (of course) and supplies and let's get started on this quick, 10 minute project!

1. Gather your supplies:
• pen or pencil
• ribbon (about 32 inches long)
presentation folder
• scissors or X-Acto knife
• prints (our 5x7 example prints use the borders from our Vendor Marketing Kit)



2. Place your prints in the center of your presentation folder and make a mark on either side of the prints (centered between the top and bottom) the same height as the width of your ribbon (our ribbon is approximately 3/8 inch wide, so our marks reflect that).



3. Use scissors or an X-Acto knife to cut along your line. (Don't forget to place something beneath your presentation folder to protect your cutting surface.)



4. Feed the ribbon through each slit from the back to the front.



5. Place your prints inside and tie a ribbon.



6. Add any other items you'd like to your folder (in this case, we're using our Vendor Marketing Kit).



7. Close your folder up, and you're done! We've added another ribbon to the outside, and a little sprig from our garden for an extra special touch.

Hi, I'm Casey, a floral and visual designer, specializing in creating stylized events and gatherings. More than that, I love putting together visuals for retail and residential spaces utilizing natural components and botanical elements. Serving as the Creative Director for PlantShed, a full service, floral boutique in Manhattan, I have worked closely with high fashion and couture designers, bespoke interior design firms, and textile companies to help produce cohesive and thoughtful designs. While typically inspired by nature and organic shapes, I enjoy experimenting with more structured design concepts, botanical textures, and other far-reaching design aesthetics. But I never really meant to live in New York City. I came here in 2011 to spend a summer and potentially expand my career as a floral designer. Landing odd jobs and working freelance in the industry was exciting and stressful at first, though I eventually found a home at PlantShed, a New York based floral and plant company. So, let me tell you about PlantShe

I started my photography career in 1990 and, as expected from a traditional film photographer, my career followed a familiar path that transitioned to shooting digital. What you might not expect is that I still embrace the traditional medium of film; in fact, it now lies at the heart of the images we create at Cooper Photography. I've encountered many milestones over the years, but what I could not have foreseen were the three notable changes that saw me move full circle:
